Cream Cheese Bats

There are millions of recipes of cakes and sweets, but it is quite a challenge to find recipes of healthy snacks that children will actually like or enjoy. This recipe was inspired by a recipe I had seen in the Pillsbury Halloween Magazine of 2011, but I change  the whole recipe since they called for herbs and goat cheese and I did not think that children would like the taste of either one. Try this recipe.. and tell me what you think…

Ingredients: 1 cream cheese, 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup of cooked bacon and crumbled, salt and pepper to taste. Black tortilla chips, long pretzels.

First place 1/3 of the tortilla chips in a plastic bag and close the bag very well. With a rolling pin, roll over the plastic bag to crumble the chips. Empty the crumbs in a plate.

In a mixer, place the cream cheese, the bacon and the parmesan and mix well. Add a little bit of salt and pepper to taste. With a teaspoon, make small balls out of cheese that you will roll in your hands first, then roll in the tortilla chips crumbs. Break 1 pretzel stick in  3 parts, and use them to make the eyes, and the mouth. Break one chip in half and use both halves to make the ears.. Et voila!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
